Re: Reggie Lynch facing suspension

This kid has serious problems -- it is very difficult to get expelled from a university and from what has been published they felt it was overwhelming to recommend. I hope he uses this to wake up and get some help and not be coddled and enabled to continue on this trajectory.

Re: Milik Getting Some Pub

I think MY needs to come back for his final year at ISU. He could have a great year in the Valley and dominate and put up some good numbers. Also, it could be a good place to work on some of his weaknesses in a familiar environment. Some are already saying the Birds will be very good next year and r...

Re: AD monitors are idiots

I don't see why ISU shouldn't have a 12 minute timeout policy in play for some of those seats. In that, if you have not made it to your seat anywhere in the lower bowl by the first half 12 min mark, your seat becomes general admission to anyone in the stadium. This, of course, would be trumped if y...

Re: Valpo

Was at the game last night and what impressed me the most was the energy of the student section. Excellent turnout and they were into the game from the start. Good job by Red Alert. DM said on post game that they were noticeably energetic and how clearly they let the refs know about a few horrible c...

Re: At Northern Iowa 1/24

I believe our wins over USC and Ole Miss have given us fans a false sense of the talent on this team. :text-+1: I was just thinking the same thing, but you beat me to it, probably because you are smarter. I would like to start a thread with the title, 'Are We Talented'...but I don't know how to, be...

Re: Thanks, Quinn

As I’m sitting reading several threads, just felt like throwing Quinn a thanks. It’s a frustrating time to be a fan, and this board is a fantastic sounding board for everyone, differing opinion or not. I’ve gotten a little more frustrated than I like at times this year and I apologize for that, if ...

Re: Gargoyles @ Redbirds 1-17-18 6 p.m.

Glad we got the W -- these games are usually ugly battles. Really impressed with MY playing within himself. No turnovers -- he wasn't making those crazy high risk passes and dribbling into and through double and triple teams. Nice adjustment! Free throws were perfect (12-12). Hein hustled and had a ...

Re: Gargoyles @ Redbirds 1-17-18 6 p.m.

Your Hein bashing is simply ridiculous. This kid is becoming a VERY nice player. I read many collegiate boards and I have never seen someone so willing to eat their own. Has it dawned on you that the players read these posts? And what about recruits? They see a player who has put splinters in his a...

Re: Milik Getting Some Pub

MY reminds me of Zack Lofton. Attitude problems. Head strong. Willful. Overly emotional. Butting heads with coaches. Out of control at times. Talented. DM tries to get them to buy in and make them better players and young men. They huff and puff and pout. They bolt. Then, after they have transferred...

Re: Redbirds @ Salukis 1-13-18 5pm

One recurring theme has been the high rate of turnovers. Playing hard on defense has been a battle all year. Put those two together and it adds up for tough times on he hardwood. A recent article in the Vidette reported DM saying that he is frustrated because bad passes are continually thrown after ...

Re: Sycamores @ Redbirds 12-31-17

On the post game show DM gave shout outs to MH, MW and TB along with the regulars. MH hustles every play and had a solid game. DM said MW played defense so great today -- probably his best game -- that it reminded him of TW. By the way, it was nice to see Paris, Tony and Javaka in the stands. Gutty ...

We will be braving the cold to attend the game as well. Anticipating Christian and/or David playing. Hope to see some intense D and effective offense.

Re: Evansville Thread

Congrats to the Birds on nice road win!

We need another player to step up besides the core 3. MW struggled today.

Hope we get some injury news concerning Big D and even how Christian is coming along -- being in street clothes is not a good sign after dressing last game.

Re: Evansville Thread

Hope against hope -- since we have all been anticipating the return of our big men -- but if David or Christian return we will have the size needed to dominate this game. If not, at least our reserves that have been converted to advanced minutemen are seasoned and will continue to contribute in posi...

Thanks for posting. MY is a special talent. He is smooth in his game and his skill set is above most when he's on the court. It sounds like he's strong-willed and has a tendency to let his emotions get the best of him. He is not a pouter or selfish player in the likes of Zack Lofton and seems to hav...

Nice article really. It shows DM is more interested in the process and motivation and hustle than talent and wins. Now put all those things together and you have a team that can reach their potential. Last year's team pulled out many close victories because of this. They didn't sulk and not play "al...
